KILLIAN MARTIN: BUT IS IT ART?



Written by Jack Blocker

Brett Novak's short films featuring the Spanish skateboarder Killian Martin have been doing the rounds for a while now. The beautifully shot clips and mind-melting skill of Martin are undeniabley groundbreaking, but their style inevitabley leads to a trail of douchey Youtube comments - 'truly shows the skateboard as an extension of the body' or 'he turns the street into his canvas bro' etc etc.

Martin's skateboarding in the new film is as complex and baffling as ever, but did they really need to highlight their obvious cultural ambition by shooting it in an art gallery chock full of art? I think I'm starting to agree with Pedro Vega...

Dude seems to know what's up.
